Review of Stil. [12k1020]

Blow Up (IT)

Inspired by the pictures of Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto, particularly by the composure of his seascapes which blends reiteration and infinitesimal changes, Stil. is certainly the most ambitious and mature work of Taylor Deupree. Four lengthy compositions with an apparently motionless outline (Stil. comes from stillness), starting from the amazing ambient-glitch drowsiness of “Snow/Sand” and ending with the abstract drone of the title track, repeated loops that in the long run releases pulses originally frozen in unimaginable interstices, melodic grains floating in rhythmic multi-stratifications absolutely unforeseeable in the final utopia to fix time and (sound) space for the eternity.
